BOTTLE Filed March 19, 1934 INVENTOR ATTORNEYS Patented July 2, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.
The invention relates to containers and more especially to bottles for service as ink containers, vinegar cruets, sauce bottles and others used by druggists, or for other purposes where pouring is done often and the user does not wish to be bothered with a bottle stopper.
The primary object of the invention is the provision of a container or bottle of this character, wherein the same carries a separable mouth which can function to hold a determined quantity of liquid which is delivered thereto from the body of the bottle and this separable mouth may be utilized for pouring purposes or as a well for ink fluid, the container or bottle being of novel construction.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a container or bottle of this character, wherein the separable neck is adapted to carry a cap which is removable therefrom at its outer end, while arranged at the inner end portion of this neck is a valve which admits a determined quantity of liquid from the body of the bottle and prevents such liquid from flowing back into the body of the bottle and the liquid within the neck may be utilized with safety to the contents of the body of the bottle, the bottle being readily refilled or emptied and of a construction involving simplicity and durability, it being compact and inexpensive to manufacture.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described in detail, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, which discloses the preferred embodiment of the invention, and pointed out in the claim hereunto appended.
In the accompanying drawing:
Figure 1 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view through a bottle constructed in accordance with the invention.
Figure 2 is a side elevation partly broken away and showing the bottle inverted for the transfer of a determined quantity of its contents from the body of the bottle to the neck or mouth thereof.
Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2 showing the bottle returned to normal position and a portion of the contents trapped or held in the neck or mouth of said bottle.
Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 3 showing a slight modification.
Figure 5 is a perspective View of the valve as employed in the bottle.
Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the bottle comprises a body I0, in this instance shown made from glass although it may be made from any other suitable material, which constitutes a container for liquid II, as for example, writing ink,v 5 the top of the body I0 being formed with an externally threaded nipple l 2 so that the said bottle may be lled or emptied therethrough. Engageable with the nipple I2 is a separable neck I3 which constitutes the mouth to the bottle.
The neck I3 is formed at its inner end with an externally threaded collar-like coupling portion I4 for threaded engagement with the nipple I 3 on the body Il) of the bottle and in this fashion the neck is separably joined therewith. Interiorly of the neck I3, next to the collar-like portion I4, is an annular shoulder I5 to provide a seat for an expansible cork or packing I6 carried Iby separably connected male and female parts I'I and I8, respectively, these being separably joined by the companion threads I9 formed on the respective parts. The part Il is accommodated in the annular shoulder I5 to locate the part I8 within the neck I3 and this part has the dished area 20 with a center opening ZI communicative with the 25 center opening 22 in the part I'I through which communication is had between the body I0 and the neck I3, as will be clearly apparent in Figures 1, 2 and 3 of the drawing.
The part Il, concentrically of its opening 22, is formed with a raised valve seat 23 for engagement with a valve 24, its stem 25 being separably connected with a ball weight 26, the stem being loose in the opening 22 in the part I'I, so that when the bottle is in normal upstanding position the valve 24 will become automatically seated under the action of the weight 26 to close communication between the body I 0 and the neck I3 and on inverting the bottle from its normal upstanding position the valve 24 will leave its seat and communication will be had between the body and the neck of the bottle. The weight 26, next to the stem 25, is provided with a spacing spider 21 which prevents the ball from closing the openr ing 22 on the inverting of the bottle, so that the o iiow of contents of said bottle will not be interrupted, to the neck I3 as this spider 21 avoids the ball 26 seating in the opening 22, as will be apparent. 50
It will lbe clear that the cork or packing I 6 will frictionally hold the parts I1 and I8 within the neck I3 of the bottle on the expanding of the said cork or packing.
The neck I3 outwardly of the parts I'I and I8 will function as a Well for ink fluid to assure a ready supply thereof to the user of the bottle.
Carried by the neck I3 is a closure cap 28, it being preferably threaded upon the neck and telescoped thereover so as to seal the outer` mouth end of said neck.
The bottle will serve as a pouring bottle as well as an ink Well for the dispensing of the contents of said bottle.
In Figure 4 of the drawing there is shown a slight modication, wherein the neck 29 has the internal integral partition 30 provided with the center opening 3l for the Valve, the latter working identically with the valve 24 and including the stem 32 and ball Weight 33, respectively, so that in this construction the parts I1 and I8 and the cork or packing I6 will be entirely dispensed with.
The valve is formed With an eye 34 so that when it is desired that the neck I3 be emptied of the liquid therein into the body of the bottle I0, a suitable implement, for examplel a hook, can be engaged with the eye 34 to lift the valve from its seat 23, thus permitting the liquid to flow back into the bottle, as Will be obvious. Also, it may be found advantageous to iill the bottle body IIl with liquid through the neck I3 and to accomplish this the Valve 24 would have to be lifted from its seat 23 in the manner as just stated.
What is claimed is:
The combination of a cylindrical body having an internally threaded coupling end and an externally threaded opposite end, the coupling end being adapted for separable connection with a bottle neck, a dividing Wall formed interiorly of the body at the internally threaded end for providing a liquid chamber throughout the major portion of the length of the body and having an opening through said Wall, said Wall being provided with a Valve seat concentrically of its opening, a pendant Weighted valve engaged in said opening and automatically sealing itself upon the seat for the closing of the opening on the bringing of the body from a tilted position to a vertical position With the externally threaded end uppermost and for the fllling of said chamber When the body is in tilted position by the trafc of a quantity of liquid through the opening from the neck of a bottle when the body is attached to the latter, and a closure separable from the externally threaded end of said body for access to the said chamber therein.
